Ducky One TKL RGB
It is a wonderfully great keyboard when it comes to portability and typing experience. Although slightly heavier, it has a very strong metal place encased with thick and durable ABS plastic shell too. The surface-mounted RGB LEDs light up brightly, but lacks the flexibility to select colours through a graphical user interface. I really hope that Ducky will develop a completely optional software just to manage everything on the keyboard itself – and then it’ll be perfect.
Hey – it’s another keyboard from the Ducky One family of mechanical keyboards with genuine Cherry MX switches! Yes, that’s right, but this time it’ll be using an RGB variant of the Cherry MX switch instead.
Enter the Ducky One TKL RGB mechanical keyboard. It’s one of the keyboard that’s highly sought in the market, and it’s really interested to see such fireworks displayed from a mechanical keyboard too. I unboxed it on Facebook Live last week too – and we’ll surely be doing more of these in the future. So please do follow us on Facebook!
Here’s the entire packaging of the Ducky One TKL RGB. It looks completely the same as before, except for a much more colourful Ducky logo and font all over the front.
Opening the package up shows nothing different either from its entire Ducky One family of keyboards either (reviewed Ducky One TKL single-colour LED here, reviewed Ducky One PBT Dye-Sub here) – a keycap puller, a warranty card, micro USB cable, the keyboard itself, and a plastic cover.
The keyboard doesn’t have any significant weight difference compared to its non-backlit brother (which I own and use one personally). Ducky also maintained the chassis from its other Ducky One series of keyboards too, including all of the cable management holes.
The other difference in terms of design is the piece of plate where all the switches are mounted on is white instead. This is of course to help in the reflection of light emitting from the base of the Cherry MX key switches. More on this later, but now let’s move on.
Quick note though – the Ducky One TKL RGB comes with a red PCB instead of its usual blue colour in the other two Ducky One TKL variants. This is obvious on the DIP switch.
